Britney Spears’ legal battle will be front and center again on Wednesday (July 14) in Los Angeles. It’s unclear what Judge Brenda Penny will rule on today as the court proceedings won’t be available for the media to view.
An audio recording of the June 23rd hearing was leaked, which was against the rules in place due to the pandemic, Judge Penny then ordered a media blackout.
Since the last hearing, Britney’s manager has resigned as well as her court-appointed lawyer, Samuel Ingham. Britney and her mother, Lynne, have asked the court for the ability of the singer to select her own lawyer; she’s looking to retain celebrity lawyer Mathew Rosengart.
If approved, Rosengart would ask for Jamie Spears to be removed as co-conservator and for the conservatorship as a whole to be dissolved.
The #FreeBritney movement centres on Britney Spears’s conservatorship, which the singer described yesterday in court as “abusive”. Similar legal arrangements affect some 1.3m Americans. From March https://t.co/q8Gkooq1lW
